it was always pick as many fights as possible. no. i think -- i think you -- wherever you are, you use the event to your advantage and if you're going into a hostile audience -- for me, and i think usually for most politicians, it's to do what tim kaine is doing, by the way, from what i've heard across virginia very well, he's going to all of his enemies first and saying hey, listen, i understand you're not going to be with me, but i'm going to always listen to you. you know, i always would go into neutrals. on this stage, i don't think there was any doubt about it he was playing to conservatives, some would say cynically and he was playing to independents saying, hey, you know, all the stuff you heard about me i only tell people what they want to hear, watch this. and let me give you one more clip, here's mitt romney when he got booed talking about president obama's health care plan. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find, that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boo ] >> of course, steve rattner, throughout the day, mitt romney

, the president says look, we have such little agreement among us on different side of the the fence, at least we can agree that here's a group of folks who ought to have a n continuation of the bush tax cuts. what's the response. >> two big take aways from today. one on the politics. general election campaign, he's trying to throw a bone to frustrated middle class voters say i'm with you. make sure your rates stay at the rate they are today. but politics on capitol hill are a little different. two years ago, president obama extended the cuts. obama's signalsiling to people capitol hill, but laying out the stakes for that this year. >> why not do that for which tlgd be agreement on. he or she who's making $261,000 a year is going to enjoy the bush tax cut for the first 250 of that. >> you're committing the sin of talking sense. it was a question our pal didn't answer when he gave his response to you. the president saying we can agree on 98%, but republicans are holding that 98% hostage as they did in 2010, knowing that it's very difficult to justify continuing these tax cut bonuses for the rich
/cheney years, american's approval rating dropped by 20%, 30%, 40%, and that was people who like us. there was the start of two of the longest wars in american history. both of which were started by the bush administration, one of which was started under false pretenlss and both were raging when they left. it was the drowning of a great american city in hurricane katrina. remember mission accomplished? remember 9/11, torture, armstrong williams remember the presidential adviser caught shoplifting repeatedly from target. remember that guy? remember the vice president of the united states shooting a guy in the face. there's a reason george w. bush left office in january 2009 with the lowest approval rating for an outgoing president since galt started asking that question back in the 1930s. and frankly, the vice president, dick cheney, would have killed to get numbers that high. his approval rating was 13% when he left office. part of the headwind that john mccain had running in 2008, trying to run as a republican after george w. bush and dick janney was george w. bush and dick cheney.
, the president says look, we have such little agreement among us on different sides of the fence. at least we can agree here's a group of folks who ought to have a continuation of the bush tax cuts. why don't we at least take care of that piece of business. what's the response? >> two big take aways from today. one on the politics. looks like an attack to the center. in the general election campaign he's trying to throw a bone to frustrated middle class voters saying i'm with you. make sure your rates stay at the rate they are today. but politics on capitol hill are a little different. two years ago, president obama extended the bush tax cuts as part of the lame duck 2010 session. this was the first in the 2012 lame duck politics. obama's signalling to people on capitol hill, but laying out the stakes for that lame duck discussion this year. >> why not do that for which at least there can be agreement on. he or she who's making $261,000 a year is going to enjoy the bush tax cut for the first 250 of that. in other words, everybody would be a beneficiary in this scenario. >> you're committing the s
'm just guessing. he will always soar to great heights here on the riduculist. that's it for us. "early start" begins now. >>> the horse race for the white house. it's close. a brand-new poll shows one candidate with a slight lead. >>> street fight in syria. the assad regime sending in more troops as it struggles to hold the country's largest city. >>> mystery solved. take a look. police say this surveillance video of a man putting a woman in the trunk of a car isn't what it looks like. not sure what it looks like, but i promise we will tell you what it looks like. there it is. >> there. >> i think it's more dumb than it is scary in the end. stay tuned. we'll tell you exactly what's going op. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. 5:00 a.m. in the east. coming one a man who says he has been cured of hiv. dr. sanjay gupta talked to him. you'll hear about that later this hour. really remarkable. >>> plus, brett favre couldn't stay retired after all. he's back in football taking a job you might not expect. we'll tell you all about it. stay tuned.
't need a special council. we're going to have a couple of u.s. attorneys, one from d.c. and one from maryland, they're going to investigate which some say is political. clearly they work for the attorney general that works for the president. anyway, we'll play you -- we'll give you both the quotation. here first is senator feinstein on monday essentially taking aim at the white house for spilling the political beans, the secret beans. >> i think the white house has to understand that some of this is coming from its ranks. i don't know specifically where. but they're, i think, they have to begin to understand that and do something about it. >> and then up next, she again another statement just yesterday and we have this one for you, too. i stated that i did not believe the president leaked classified information. i shouldn't have speculated beyond that because of the fact of the matter is i don't know the source of the leaks. but, you know, this really brings up the issue of transparency as well which is something that the obama administration has promised from day one and if you'll
care. >> i care. >> legitimate baseball fans care, but it certainly is not as big a deal as it used to be because of interleague play. we see different players from different teams in both leagues all during the year. you can get any game you want on your baseball package on cable. doesn't have the same allure that it used to, certainly. >> yeah. mika. >> yeah. >> the battle over the bush tax cuts. >> here we go again. >> here we go. >> now it's -- because we were talking yesterday on the set in new york about the limit, the $250,000 limit. that could come back. it's growing over how much of the bush-era tax cuts to extend just for the middle class, or, perhaps, for the wealthiest americans as well. both candidates invoked the 42nd president bill clinton to frame their strategies yesterday. take a listen. >> i mean, the very idea of raising taxes on small business and job creators at the very time we need more jobs, is the sort of thing only an extreme liberal could come up with. this is the sort of thing that used to be in the democratic party in the times past. bill clinton called
us? >> sure, zoraida. i think we'll expect the horse race all the way up to november to stay this close. this is going to be one of those real, real tight presidential elections p. but, of course, there are certain bullet points that we focus on when we're looking at these numbers. let's look at this number on the economy. the economy, issue number one in this election. what most voters will likely vote on come november. mitt romney has a six-point advantage over president obama right now when asked who has a better idea to improve the economy. very good news for the romney campaign up in boston when they see that number. however, out in chicago, you can see that the obama campaign can take solace in this number on likability. a 20-point gap, zoraida. president obama, 60% of americans like president obama while only 47% like romney. now, the reason why that's important for president obama and how you all tie it together regarding the economy, president obama has been making the argument that he needs another four years to turn around the economy and that he was handed a very
. >> thanks and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. you know what was a really bad time? the george w. bush presidency was a really bad time. and not just if you were a liberal and you disagreed with george w. bush, just if you were an american, the george w. bush presidency, the bush/cheney years were bad years for us as a country. the national ubunemployment rate went from a little over 4% when he took office to nearly 8% by the time he left. we went from a budget surplus of more than $200 billion to a budget deficit of more than a trillion dollars. after decades of u.s. household income climbing during the 1980s and 1990s, it fell off a cliff in the bush years. after poverty declined in the 1980s and declined in the 1990s, in the bush years, it went up. by the time he left office, 6 million more americans were added to the rolls of americans who didn't have health insurance. wall street in the bush years collapsed. the country was plunged into the worst depression since the great depression in the 1930s. the bush/cheney years were a disaster. they were also a ser

us to talk about his new book that talks about putting a price on tragedy. we have a packed show this morning. talk to florida's lieutenant governor jennifer carol and also minority whip steny hoyer will be our guest and roland martin checking in and ellen burstyn with us. >> welcome, everybody. starting point this morning, fighting words from mitt romney as joe biden prepares to address the naacp convention in houston after romney's rocky reception at the convention and he is now telling the detractors go vote for someone else. it was a tough sell. he was trying to convince african-americans they would be better off with him but when he prom i canned to repeal president obama's health care law the crowd erupted in boos. >> i am going to eliminate every non-essential program i can find, that includes obama care, and i will work to reform and save -- >> romney is getting hammered in the wake of that by the naacp. jim acosta is live in houston this morning. good morning. how did it go? >> well, soledad, whenever you get booed for 15 seconds it is not exactly going well. the romney
. >> thank you, you too. and also, thanks to all of you at home for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago this week, presidential candidate senator barack obama was wrapping up a worldwide tour through europe and the middle east. designed to amp up his foreign policy credentials. here's what that looked like. as many as 200,000 people crowded their way into berlin's tear garden park to hear senator obama's vision for the world in july of 2008 and to cheer. and cheer, and cheer some more. >> the greatest danger of all is to allow nuance to divide us from one another, the walls between old allies on either side of the atlantic cannot stand. the walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. the walls between races and tribes, natives and immigrants, christians and muslims and jews cannot stand. these now are the walls we must tear down. >> senator obama was greeted abroad like a political rock star. and not just by his tens of thousands of adoring fans. as frank rich put it at the time, senator obama was treated like a, quote, president in waiting
and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> that was one sample of what we heard. i also talked to another woman who said that she absolutely booed but she said she was not booing mitt romney, she was booing his agenda. vice president joe biden will be coming in here later on this morning. the president is not coming to the naacp. the white house says he has a scheduling conflict and that's why joe biden is here, but, soledad, i have to tell you if romney's aim yesterday was exciting the conservative base with that speech he gave to the naacp, he may have also excited the liberal base of the democratic party or at least african-american voters because i think this crowd will give joe biden a warm response when he gets into this hall later on this morning. as for mitt romney, later on today talking about speaking to your base, he is going to be holding a fundraiser in wyoming with none other than dick cheney. soledad. >> jim acosta for us. thank you. i should mention in a few minutes we'll be speaking with florida's lieutenant gov, jennifer carol, the first african-america
